Course summary

Why English Literature and Creative Writing?

Our English Literature and Creative Writing degree enables you to pursue your passion for story, literature and creativity, as you become a successful creative and critical writer. You’ll develop skills in different writing strands including prose, poetry and drama, before exploring specialisms such as transgressive writing, crime fiction and sci-fi. With opportunities to gain experience working with organisations such as the Parabola Arts Centre, Johnson & Alcock literary agency and Everyman Theatre, our graduates stand out from the competition. They can immerse themselves in a vibrant local literary culture, with The Times and The Sunday Times Cheltenham Literature Festival right on their doorstep.You’ll draw on the expertise of experienced lecturers, including published writers in both fields of the course, and be able to work closely with professionals from the Everyman Theatre - even seeing your work performed by actors in a staged reading. You’ll benefit from opportunities to get published in our student-led magazine, ‘Show Don’t Tell’, as well as in our annual paperback anthology, the ‘New Writing’ series.
